    Factory radio , or recently installed aftermarket radio? Any other aftermarket items that are tied into lighting system?.........Random thought.........remove ALL bulbs in system involved and re-install one by one until fuse blows and that'll help narrow down area of short (unless you have a diagram).

    I agree with ziptie and a drl module is short for daytime running light module
